Large-Memory SMP Servers
The HPC Center within Research Computing currently maintains the following resources for calculations requiring large amounts of physical memory.
- 21 Intel (E5462, 8x 2.8 GHz cores) servers with 64 GB of RAM (physical memory)
- 1 Intel (X7560, 16x 2.2 GHz cores) server with 128 GB of RAM.
- 1 AMD (Opteron 6174, 48x 2.2 GHz cores) server with 512 GB of RAM
The 128 GB and 512 GB machines are available only via a restricted queue (bigmem). To submit jobs to this queue you will need to add the #PBS -q bigmem directive to your job script or use "-q bigmem" option on the qsub command line.
Before attempting to run jobs via the bigmem queue, you should request access to the bigmem queue via a support request (http://support.hpc.ufl.edu).
